US Appeals Court Denies Delay Request in Boston Marathon Bombing Trial

Saturday, 03 Jan 2015 01:20 PM

A U.S. appeals court on Saturday denied a last-ditch request by lawyers for accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to delay his trial on charges of killing three people and injuring more than 260 in the attack.

Attorneys for Tsarnaev, 21, had also sought to have the trial moved out of Boston, the site of the April 15, 2013, bombing, which stands as the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001.

Jury selection in the trial at U.S. District Court in Boston is due to begin Monday.
